Picking the right plant material for the micro-environment is just one of the keys to making the ground cover joints work. The other key is the right irrigation. Direct to root zone irrigation, or subsurface irrigation is the best choice for watering your plant material efficiently and optimally. If that watering is set up properly, weed control over the long term should be minimal and waste and maintenance will be all but a thing of the past. If you are very worried about plants surviving, watering them and the maintenance associated, just substitute plants for another permeable material like decomposed granite or gravel.

FYI clover is not a weed, it fixes nitrogen into the soil, so no fertilizer is needed. A healthy lawn is not a monoculture but many different plants that protect each other. Clover was classifed as a weed when the companies that sell products realized it was killed with the weeds. go green. Dandelion is edible, has pretty flowers. check this article: http://organiclawncare101.com/history.html

jolaurie, there are a few different ways to install artificial grass in the situation pictured in jolaurie's photograph. You can either lay the stones on top of the grass, or you can cut strips and fit them between the stones. Each option has its pros and cons.
